Townsend: "We're excited to play in Canberra"

Chad Townsend says his side can't wait to take on the Canberra Raiders on their home track this Saturday night.

Speaking to the media on Monday, Townsend says the match in Week 1 of the 2016 NRL Finals was one to remember and he can't wait to play in that environment again.

The Sharks playmaker also said he is looking forward to seeing another strong contingent of Sharks fans make the trip to the capital and showing their support for the black, white and blue.
